  2. PhD project: Nutrients and soil carbon turnover

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemistry, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 10 September 2014

    Elevated atmospheric CO2 concentrations can only lead to increased plant production if also adequate amounts of nutrients are available from soils. While nitrogen deposition offsets some of the additional nutrient demand by plants, this is not the case for phosphorus, potentially causing a nutrient imbalance in soils. Based on CO2 … Read more ]

  3. PhD project: Impact of plant diversity on metabolism channels

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemistry, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 10 September 2014

    Soil microbial communities play an important role in soil organic carbon cycling and storage, as they hold a central position in the cycle and transfer of plant derived carbon to the soil organic matter. However, focusing only on the plant-soil interaction is likely to underestimate the role of autotrophic archaea … Read more ]

  4. PhD project on aluminium hydroxide (trans-)formation

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemistry, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 10 September 2014

    In forest ecosystems under low to medium pH conditions, secondary hydrous Al-oxides like boehmite, gibbsite, diaspore, or nordstrandite and aqueous Al complexes are of paramount importance. These Al phases are involved in several environmentally relevant processes such as pH buffering at low pH, formation of organo-mineral mixed phases, soil-organic-matter dynamics, ... Read more ]

  5. PhD project: Role of biopores for fluid flow and matter transport

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemistry, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 10 September 2014

    Biopores are well known as hot-spots of (micro-) biological activity in soils. Recently, their role within major biogeochemical element cycles including of carbon, nitrogen, silicon, iron and manganese, and for the water budget and water dynamics are discussed. Besides burrows of higher animals and insects like termites or soil dwelling … Read more ]

  6. PhD project: Micropores: from microscale processes to macroscale ore deposits

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemistry, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 10 September 2014

    The scaling problem is long known. It comes especially true for systems, in which the activity of microorganisms leads to changes of geological impact, like the formation of superficial ore deposits. Here, the growth conditions in a pore volume may differ essentially from bulk water, and thus cementation and dissolution … Read more ]

  7. Nonlinearities in soil organic matter dynamics

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemistry, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 10 September 2014

    Soil organic matter decomposition is a fundamental process within the Earth system by which carbon and other biogeochemical elements fixed by plants in the process of photosynthesis are transferred to the atmosphere and the hydrosphere. This release of biogeochemical elements is fundamental for other processes in the Earth system, such … Read more ]

  8. PhD project: Global assessment of land surface functional properties

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemistry, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 10 September 2014

    Land surface characteristics control how e.g. carbon and water flow through the different compartments on land. Understanding the spatial variability of these land surface functional properties is essential to understand how land surface processes respond to climate change, and is furthermore highly desirable for global modeling purposes. This PhD will … Read more ]

  9. PhD project: Interactions of vegetation functional properties & the water cycle

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemistry, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 10 September 2014

    The distribution and the development of different plant forms and their functional properties is controlled by local environmental conditions, because plants adapted to them. How plants distribute the available carbon, nitrogen, and other elements to their different compartments and organs (e.g. leafs vs roots) should drive the distribution of biomass … Read more ]

  10. Extracting & generalizing information from half-hourly eddy covariance flux data

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemistry, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 10 September 2014

    In the past years community efforts have shown that it is feasible to extract predictive relationships between meteorological drivers, remote sensing observation and fluxes between the biosphere and the atmosphere on daily to monthly integrated time steps (e.g. Jung et al. 2010, Nature; Jung et al. 2011, JGR-Biogeo). However information … Read more ]
